Welcome to Heads-up, VideoGamer.com's weekly feature which gives you an at-a-glance run-down on the games you'll be able to buy or rent this weekend. Every Tuesday we'll pick out the best of the bunch, link to our reviews and previews and keep you in the video game loop so you have enough time to pre-order for Friday's post. Time to splash the cash.

Recommendation of the Week: FIFA 09, PS3, Xbox 360, PS2, Wii, DS, PSP and PC
There's really only one release on everyone's lips this week and that's FIFA 09. Once again EA takes steps towards footballing perfection, delivering another highly impressive sim of the beautiful game. If you want the stunning presentation, the licensed teams and leagues, the best online play and the most football-like gameplay, FIFA 09 is your best option. With PES 09 not due for release until October 17 FIFA has a few weeks with the market all to itself although that hasn't meant EA has rested on its laurels. This is the best FIFA to date.

And the rest...
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations (DS)
SimCity Creator (DS)
Naruto: Ninja Council 2 (DS)
TNA Impact! (Wii)
Zubo (DS)
Bella Sara (DS)
Dancing Stage SuperNOVA 2 (PS2)

FIFA 09 tomorrow! Cannot wait to unleash hell on Hull after are shocking 2-1 defeat against them. But however we did make up for it against Porto in the champions league, also we will have that fighting spirit in us for Sunderland this Saturday.

Don't mind me going on, FIFA 09 seems the best option this week as being s PES fan alongside FIFA 09. FIFA gets the thumbs up for sure, as of playing the 360 verison in GAME yetersday. The gameplay is totally better than FIFA 08, but it still feels like FIFA 08 in a way like the time your player releases the ball.
